Foxtel Go coming soon to Android, exclusive to Samsung devices?

Foxtel is soon expected to release its Foxtel Go app on the Android platform, but latest rumours suggest the app will be available exclusively for Samsung mobile and tablet devices until October.
A report published by Australian blog TechGuide yesterday suggests the Foxtel Go app for Android will be released on Monday June 3 but will initially be exclusive to Samsung devices.
According to the site, the exclusivity agreement will run until Thursday 31 October, where the app is then expected to be available through other branded Android phones and tablets.
It is unknown which Samsung Android devices will be compatible with the Foxtel Go app when it launches, but the popular Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II and the upcoming Galaxy S4 smartphones are more than likely going to make the cut.
PC World Australia contacted Foxtel to clarify the report, but a spokesperson only offered this rather general statement:
"Foxtel is working hard on delivering Foxtel Go to a variety of Android devices, including Samsung mobile and tablet devices.
Currently our Foxtel Go Android product is in the testing and approvals stage and we hope to announce a launch date for our customers soon."
The Foxtel Go app was first released as an iPad-only app in November 2012, before becoming available for the iPhone and iPod touch back in February.
The app can also be used to remotely set recordings for Foxtel programming on any linked Foxtel iQ digital video recorder.
